To improve the living conditions of pets in Eastern Europe by providing: food, medical care, adoption.
U-Hearts – is a nonprofit public organization that works towards improvement of living conditions of abandoned pets in Eastern Europe. Due to the war, thousands of pets in Ukraine have been left without homes and proper care.
Almost 415 tons – that is the exact quantity of food that was successfully provided for pets from Ukraine since the start of the initiative Save Pets of Ukraine. The network of aid recipients can reach over 47 thousand cats and over 53 thousand dogs.
The foundation started its operation from purchasing pet food, and now it is working on promoting medical care in shelters. The first step has been taken – an anti-rabies vaccine for 1000 pets has been purchased.
